Searching and Assholes....

There's a whole lot of content on this website, great! 99% of it is cluttered with dipship, assholes telling people to SEARCH...

How about this... Don't click the link, don't offer help, just keep being awesome... When the OP notices no one responding, he'll figure it out on his own...


I just bought a 2012 750 and started reading all the threads from day 1 of the 11-12 600/750 section and within 2 weeks you have guys telling people to search. Bunch off assholes.....


To those who answer the same questions 1000 times and to those who just laugh and say " This question again... " Thank you very much for being a decent human being...


end rant.

Re: Searching and Assholes....

Just an idea..... After a month setup an automatic delete that removes threads with less than 2 posts..

That'll clean up the forum and make searching significantly easier for those that aren't computer savvy.

Try GSXR.com or get over it.

Re: Searching and Assholes....

Or people can search

It's 2013 and there is NO excuse for being computer illiterate. If you can't figure it out then that is on you not anyone else so pull up your big boy pants. What exactly are you bitching about, seems you got your info on your question.

In your world, there's no excuse... Many people have never used or even heard of forums.

I agree that people should search.. We both agree on that note... My point is why post to search and act annoyed when you can just ignore it. That just adds more crap on the forum that I have to read through...

At the moment I'm trying to figure out how to get a nice exhaust setup without having to cough up $1000.... I started with about 50 tabs and of those 50 only 5-8 actually info that i found usable... The rest are litered with SEARCH...

Over the last 10-15 years I've posted regularly on 15-20 forums and have never seen this bs anywhere else....

Re: Searching and Assholes....

How about if you're not computer literate stop trying to find shit on the internet?

Go to a dealer and order a paper copy of a service manual for any questions, and GTFO the internets!

I'm saying in general... Not me specifically, I can work a keyboard like I can work my penis... Perfect, every time...

For your average person, who is new to forums, they may not know how to properly search...


For example if you go to search and simply type exhaust.. You'll get 1000+ hits... But if you go to advanced and find the section for your model the results are much better.. If you took a poll on here i'd put money 20-40% of the members here don't know about that..


Once again the point of this thread wasn't saying people shouldn't search... I've been reading threads on here for the last 3 days straight trying to learn everything I can about my new bike.. My point was in the last 3 days of reading, half of that reading has been SEARCH....


If you can't agree that members tell people to SEARCH too often then you're just an idiot and is here to create trouble than actually help people..

Well if we dont tell them to search how are they gonna learn to?

Hand a man a fish he eats for a day, teach a man to fish..............

And BTW I have been on over twice as many forums as you claim in the same amount of time, and most of them are the same.

Quit your god damned whining. We don't care how you feel about the way this place is run. If you dont like it, That goes for anyone who comes on this forum saying how poorly it's run. The mods here do a great job and they run it the way they seem fit.

You want to run a forum that's all about hugging dick and teaching people how to use forums? Go right ahead.

Oh and if YOU were capable of finding the 1 out of them 10 threads I am sure someone with a complete brain can as well.

Every one else can just repost and get flamed.

Gotta have thick skin on this forum or at least mind your P's and Q's. There is one thread right now that so far appears OP's bike wont start and all he has done is log on here to ask why his bike wont start. No trouble shooting at all.

Re: Searching and Assholes....

OP, you are retarded. there are some issues here that involve dozens of pages of replies, and they are NECESSARY to answer the problem. electrical problems can be very tedious, and spending 100 pages walking a neophyte through his bullshit issue that he didn't even have the vocabulary to describe and it ends up being his killswitch is a complete disservice. if there are 20 steps to a diagnosis, then taking 3 days to get replies to your steps is ridiculous if you could simply search a fucking problem and get your answer in 5 minutes.

delete threads after a period of time? are you daft? my racebike is 7 years old and i might have an issue that someone who is more knowledgeable than me dealt with in 2006, and perhaps, he isn't around the site anymore.

next, you get the fools who don't even follow advice. i would say that 10% of the people who don't search and then simply ask "my bike won't start, what is wrong," won't even have the goddamned courtesy to do what you recommend. they come back with "i tried 'x' to fix my prob, why won't it work" and you can ALLCAPS 'y' solution, that will solve the fucking problem and the asshole will end up saying he took the thing to the dealer and paid $500 for a wrong diagnosis and then $500 to get a part he didn't need.

there are some absolute fucking geniuses that are members of this site, and their wisdom is contained in previous threads. if the smartest guy here logs on once a week, that means that 6 days out of 7, the OP asking a question won't get the answer from the smartest guy. don't even get me started on the guys who give bad advice about gear with only ever owning one jacket, riding with only ever going with his "ruffrydaz crew down the boulevard, or electrical when they don't eve own, let alone know how to use a multimeter.

take your rant and shove it. if you don't think that searching is a viable option, YOU are missing out, not us.
